A.M. Best Managing Director to Participate in Insurance-Linked Securities-Focused Bermuda Convergence Conference

October 1, 2018

OLDWICK, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct 1, 2018--A.M. Best will participate in the Bermuda Convergence 2018 conference, which covers the insurance-linked securities (ILS), alternative reinsurance and convergence landscape. The event takes place on Oct. 3-4, 2018, at the Hamilton Princess Hotel & Beach Club in Hamilton, Bermuda.

Emmanuel Modu, managing director, analytics, will join a panel session on Oct. 3, at 11 a.m. (EDT), titled, “Accessing Risk — Shortening the Value Chain.” Modu’s segment of the session, “ILS Fund-Affiliated Rated Reinsurers: A Developing Frontier,” will focus on how ILS funds are using their own rated reinsurers and A.M. Best’s considerations in rating them. The panel will explore the phenomenon in which more ILS funds are seeking alliances with rated carriers that can provide them with the benefits of “fronting” arrangements. For more information about the ILS Bermuda Convergence conference, please view the event overview and agenda.
